Forum: etree Subject: Re: Recording Device Options?? Minidsic??

a few questions about the nomad....

can you adjust the recording levels with the nomad??

how much recording time can the nomad handle (wavs)??

when you're recording wavs with the nomad, what sample rate do you use??

if I just had a single power mic, could I plug it in to the nomad, and expect the recording to sound the same as if I had just plugged my power mic into my portable minidisc recorder?

thanks, i'm dumb, but, i learn

Yup.

I think you can buy them with 40GB or 80GB hard drives. At 16bit/44.1kHz, it's a little over 500MB per hour of recording, so basically it's 80 or 160 hours' worth of space.

You can go up to 48kHz.

Yup, I've gone line-in with Sound Pros mics and a battery box and they withstood some heavy punishment (my head in the speaker stacks at a show that really hurt my ears...forgot my earplugs :( ).

Like Tyler said, check out taperssection.com as there's a wealth of info there on JB3 recording. Dozens of tapers have been using it as their primary device for a few years now.
